WHAT IS AN TELERADIOLOGY?

Teleradiology refers to the practice of a radiologist interpreting medical images while not physically present in the location where the images are generated. Hospitals, mobile imaging companies, urgent care facilities, and even some private practices utilize teleradiology.

The process of teleradiology is based on an essential triad; an image sending station, a transmission network, and a receiving image station that must have a high-quality display screen that has been cleared for clinical purposes. There are now specialized computer programs that are dedicated to sending radiological images with the same ease associated with sending an email with image attachments.

HOW DOES TELERADIOLOGY SCAN WORK?

Telemedicine is the application of numerous technologies for the transfer of clinical information. The introduction of the internet has enabled telemedicine to expand its reach across every medical specialty. To this end, the use of telemedicine in radiology is termed “teleradiology.”
